Season launch- "Hippoposthumous"

The Unnatural Disaster Theatre Co.

VENUE: The Quarry Pond at Point Pleasant Park
“Hippoposthumous” is a one-of-a-kind outdoor theatre experience and we’re going on tour! With original music and lyrics and a story unlike you’ve ever heard- you will NOT want to miss this world premiere!
What better way to start the tour off with a splash than returning to our original home at the Quarry Pond at Point Pleasant Park (Halifax, NS)! 🦛
You can catch the show July 2-4 at 7:30 pm at the stunning Quarry Pond! Tickets are PWYC but space is limited- so be sure to reserve early! We have folding chairs you’re welcome to borrow courtesy of Shakespeare by the Sea- OR you may bring your own chairs/blankets!
Hippoposthumous is a young, slightly nervous, and surprisingly clever hippopotamus living in Colombia’s lush Magdalena River- misplaced in time and space. With their future hanging in the balance, they wallow into the spotlight to explore through rhythm and rhyme the idea of “invasive species''- from Starlings in Halifax to Giraffes in Paris. This warm hearted tragicomic musical explores the duality of being an immigrant and unwitting colonizer and follows Hippoposthumous on a poetic odyssey to discover where they’re from and what it takes to truly belong.
